Utah conservative bigots celebrate New Years Eve by asking SCOTUS to let them keep being bigots re: marriage equality


Bigot is as bigot does

Anti-marriage equality bigots in Utah have asked the Supreme Court to halt same-sex marriages in their state after a federal judge found their statewide ban unconstitutional. Since the decision, same sex couples have been getting married in droves. The petitioners today described each of these marriages this way:

Each one, the state said in its petition, “is an affront not only to the interests of the state and its citizens in being able to define marriage through ordinary democratic channels,” but also to the Supreme Court.

They’ll have to wait a few days, it seems, because the request goes first to Justice Sotomayor who is busy tonight.

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will help ring in 2014 in New York City on Tuesday by pushing the button to start the famed Times Square ball drop.

Sotomayor — a native New Yorker — will lead the celebratory crowds by pushing the crystal button at 11:59 p.m., kicking off the final countdown…

Plain and simple, this is nothing more than a matter of civil rights being denied by conservative ideologues wishing to govern with a bible in one hand a steaming mug of bigotry and hypocrisy in the other. Leave it to them to do something this dickish on New Years Eve.

Let’s end the year with an explanation about why anti-gay fundamentalist Christians are so hypocritical when it comes to marriage equality from one of my favorite comedians, John Fugelsang:
